Help me give my students a variety of cultural experiences through reading novels from different areas in the world.
My school is a top-ranked school in my state, but that does not mean that all my students are at the top of their game in academics. The students that I teach are as diverse in their learning capabilities as the diversity in the different counties in my state. The honors students that I have are ready for anything I put before them and are eager to set the world on fire. What my special needs students lack in academic ability, they make up for with their effort.
The students that I teach are recovering from a devastating blow from Hurricane Florence, and they are doing so with great strength and character.
Besides sharing in their resiliency, my students share a yearning to do their best and to succeed in the 21st century. They work well with others and give their best efforts in all that they do.
The students in my school are from a small town. They need experiences from reading that they will probably never get otherwise to develop compassion for and understanding of other cultures.
The novels in this project are set in different areas throughout the world to help my students develop tolerance and compassion for others' experiences and cultures.
These novels will take them to the Antebellum South to hear the voices of both a plantation owner's daughter and the daughter's house slave, to North Korea to hear the voice of an escapee, to the Middle East to hear the voice of a child bride, and to many other places to hear the voices of other cultures in our ever-shrinking world.
Many of my students may never leave their small town and state, but these novels can bring the world to them.
